Plans Emerge For $90M Intermodal Operation

Posted: Updated:

A Lake County company is proposing a $90 million plan to transform a 155-acre Hammond property into an intermodal facility. Our partners at The Times of Northwest Indiana report the ThruPort Intermodal LLC project could eventually lead to over 200 jobs. Plans call for a new track loop, repair operations and storage warehouses.

The tracks would be built around the former Hammond landfill.

The Times reports the Florida-based Reliable Rail Services repair facility would be covered and large enough to service full trains with more than 100 cars.
